6th Grade SOL Fairy

FCCPS Video/Ari Autor

Every year, the Mary Ellen Henderson SOL Fairy (Encore teacher Barb Piscopo) 'anoints' students entering their first day of SOL (Standards of Learning) tests.
This morning it was for 6th grade students who were given the 'fairy dust' treatment in an effort to help the kids relax before sitting down for the tests.
 

2015 Mary Ellen Henderson RoPaSci

Congratulations to Sierra Sulc (center right), the Mary Ellen Henderson 2015 RoPaSci champion. RoPaSci is math teacher Joel Block’s Rock-Paper-Scissors 'fraternity/sorority' which encourage students to maintain focus throughout the 3rd Quarter.
Turning in all homework, maintaining or improve their grades from the 2nd Quarter gets you in. A Rock-Paper-Scissors tournament determines the winner of a limo ride around Falls Church with a few friends, courtesy of Don Beyer Volvo.
Sierra brought along her frat brothers and sisters, (from left) Lara Ryad, Sean Butler, and Nicole Miceli.
